“Become engaged in your 2nd year with Executive Committees, groups, networking, and personal health. Looking back, becoming so engaged in my 4th year was amazing; however I should have been using the numerous opportunities U of T offered throughout my four years.

These include resume and cover letter workshops, editorial help, public speaking, networking opportunities within my Faculty / Department and externally through other Departments, industry events etc. The opportunities offered through the University are first-class. Do not take those for granted or wait till the last year like I did. “

“Do what excites you, not what you think you’re supposed to do. When you follow your passion you’ll always end up exactly where you’re supposed to be when you’re meant to be there – even if the journey doesn’t look the way you think it should.
